I have worked in many positions at the middle school level, including special education and regular education language arts and math. Presently, I am teaching 6th grade math and reading.
I believe school should be relevant and meaningful to students as well as fun and engaging. I strive to teach with various interesting activities, most of which are reflective of how the concept or skill may be used outside of the classroom. In addition, I always consider humor and laughter as the best mode of delivery.
I have been asked to present at conferences, and I have been both a curriculum leader and a team leader.
I am certified 6-12 in math and English. I also have a master's degree in Special Education with certifications in cognitive impairments and learning disabilities.
I am married and have 2 teenage children.
